The novel LoveStar by Icelandic writer Andri Snær Magnason is nominated for the Philip K. Dick Award, a science fiction award named after the famous writer. The winner of the prize will be announced on March 29th in Seattle. LoveStar, translated by Victoria Cribb, was published by Seven Stories Press in November 2012 (originally in Icelandic in 2002). The book tells of the lovers Indridi and Sigrid, who have their perfect worlds threatened when they are “calculated apart” and forced to go to extreme lengths to prove their love. Their journey ultimately puts them on a collision course with the founder of the LoveStar Corporation, who is on his own mission to find what might become the last idea in the world.
